HR Consultants that deliver straightforward advice and support
Skildare helps you bring out the best in your people so you can bring out the best in your business.
When you’re in business, there’s so much to do and there are never enough hours in the day. For every item ticked off your to-do list, another two are added. It’s little wonder that many business owners, like you, can’t find the time to set up and manage their human resources.
As business owners and experienced HR consultants, we get it. HR can be overwhelming and confusing. What if we told you there’s another way? At Skildare, we won’t bamboozle you with HR jargon, confuse you with complex strategies or hand you over to outsourced HR consultants that don’t understand your business or your people. We won’t even suggest a solution until we know you better.
Because we have in-house HR consultants you’ll have access to an experienced, multi-skilled team pooling its talent to help you get the best out of your people and your business.

HR consultancy help and support is just a phone call away
As a business owner, you don’t have to do HR alone or feel nervous about asking for help. Our clients are more than just business to us. We build relationships.
Choosing Skildare means being welcomed directly by our Managing Director, Diane Loong, or our General Manager, Brooke Reynolds.
Right from the start, you’ll be talking to the best in the business. But don’t worry, they’re not fast talking corporate types. They’re down-to-earth and easy to get along with, just like the rest of the Skildare HR team.

Hard work, strong values and a few laughs along the way.
Hi, we’re Diane and Adam Loong, and Skildare is our business baby. What started out as a home-based business is now one of the most highly regarded and respected HR consultant firms in Newcastle.

Meet Di, Adam and the Skildare Team
HNECCPHN is a relatively new organisation with around 100 staff across several offices. Developing a positive organisational culture in line with our values has been a focus in our development, and Skildare have been integral in this process through providing practical and expert advice and support to our internal HR team, as well as managers and the broader staffing group.
Awabakal is a very diverse organisation, operating in a complex service environment. Skildare have been able to provide HR support to a relatively new management team to ensure the Leadership team have the skills and a consistent process to mitigate risk and build a culture of professionalism in our workplace.
At Out of the Square, our OOTS Family comes first. We care about their welfare, life goals and passions. The addition of Skildare (and especially Brooke) to our HR team is playing a significant role in maintaining and enhancing this as our business continues to grow.
